Siena's BSW Program has been accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) since 1985. Why is this important?
- CSWE's Commission on Accreditation (COA) is responsible for developing accreditation standards that define competent preparation and ensuring that social work programs meet these standards
- Graduate schools offer advanced standing programs to graduates of accredited BSW programs (as long as the student meets requirements set by the individual graduate school), allowing students to earn a Master's Degree in Social Work in less than 2 years
